Accepting your offer

If you’ve applied or are considering applying for an undergraduate course at Murdoch, here’s what you need to know about receiving and accepting an offer:

  • Whether you applied through TISC or directly to Murdoch, you’ll receive your offer by email, so keep an eye on your inbox.
  • When you receive an offer, you need to respond to it by the deadline noted in the email or apply for an extension. For any questions about TISC offers, check out the TISC website. How you respond will depend on whether you are a domestic or international student, or have applied to Murdoch through one of our off-campus partners.
  • If you don’t receive an offer, don't panic. Remember, there’s more than one way to get into Murdoch. We’re here to help, so speak to us about admission pathways.
